Optimal Pushback Design

Project Number: P1210
Status: Open to sponsors
Amira Program Manager: Olga Verezub


The aim of this project is to develop software that optimises designs for the operational constraints of connectivity, minimum bench width and appropriate angles between pushbacks.

Current market solutions provide blocky designs that have no practical mining considerations, require significant human intervention and reduces potential of some oreblocks for inclusion into the life of mine design and schedule. The software incorporates features to minimise each of the drawbacks of current mining design practice.
